The Delhi Police has teamed up with local vigilante women who are now helping them track down and bust the liquor Mafia in Delhi.
After a 27-year-old woman saw her friend being harassed by a local drunk every day, she decided to take it up with the police who asked her to join their WhatsApp group. In the group, women share details of drunk men who are harassing people and the cops swoop in and pick them up.
Apart from that, the women also help the cops take down the root cause of the problem. Once they find out about someone selling alcohol illegally or making counterfeit booze, they click pictures of the suspects or the stock and send it on the group. The police then raid the spot and seize all of the alcohol.
